2 minute countdown? Excellent. That is exactly in the range that is acceptable. A full 5 minutes seemed absurd, but 2 is quite acceptable and reasonable.

And just 'cause I don't think it's been posted, Rapid Refill is also live at Boardwalk.

Checked into POR Riverside 8/18 and by the 8/19 the chips were in the mugs with the rapid refill system.

That's interesting. How do they handle it if you were there the day before and got your mugs before it went live?

They sold and encoded the new mugs for at least a week ahead of time so it should be no problem

It's only when the cup on the screen is full that the 2 minute countdown for that mug starts. No problems at all for us.

So, can you buy 1 mug for length of stay and share it amongst multiple guests? Looking at the prices, I'm thinking I don't want to buy a mug for each of my kids, but rather 1 for them all to share.

You can fill one mug, walk away and share it with whomever you want. Filling one mug then dumping that into another cup, waiting for the interval time to be over and filling it again is not ok. That's essentially stealing and the impetus for the rapid refill idea in the first place, along with people bringing back mugs. When people abuse the system we all pay for it in the end because the one entity who is not going to pay for it is Disney.

You're first thought was more what I meant. I'm thinking instead of buying 5 mugs, to buy 1 for me, 1 for the wife, and 1 for the kids to share. Nothing wrong with cutting a little cost

That would be fine. But the mugs don't hold much (12 ounces), so depending on the ages of your kids, that my be fine or an issue.

Just FYI, the mugs are 16 oz to the brim. Of course ice factors in.

You are allowed 16oz of liquid dispensed within 70 seconds of starting a fill, so you can put ice, fill, drink a bit, then top it off.

Yes, you are correct. They felt smaller than the others for some reason, but I was wrong - they are 16 ounces.

Does anyone know if the water that comes out of the pop machine is linked into the rapid fill system too? I used to fill my water bottle before hitting the parks each day but with these new mugs I might not be able to any more unless I fill my RFID mug with water and dump it into my water bottle. I am pregnant again this year so I have to drink TONS of water and we have free dining so we get the mugs for free.

Water from the rapid fill dispenser is currently free.
